An exceptionally rare dagger which belonged to Lawrence of Arabia has emerged for sale for £60,000.<br />
<br />
The 15ins long curved north African kindjal with an embossed brass pommel has been kept in its original sheaf for decades.<br />
<br />
It was gifted to a personal friend of T.E Lawrence, Isaac 'Ike' Webb, who owned the Brough Motorcycle Works in Nottingham.<br />
<br />
Owing to the legendary First World War hero's love of motorbikes, the pair enjoyed a long friendship.
